Do you use synthetic oil?

At Euro-Tech Motors we ONLY use synthetic oil. The Audi recommended oil is our lowest grade. Our premium brands include Liqui Moly and Motul, they may cost a little extra but it is worth it! 

Is it ok to take my Audi, Porsche or BMW to an oil change station?

We highly recommend not taking your car to any oil change station. Those places are designed for ordinary vehicles. Audi, Porsche and BMW vehicles are built with precision and are intended to our perform most cars on the road. Using the conventional oil that oil change stations use can cost you a lot in the long term! Make sure to request premium synthetic oil at any other place!

How often should I change my oil?

Although most manuals recommend an oil change every 8-10k miles, we highly recommend doing it every 6-8k. Most of those manuals are written by accountants and not the engineers in order to make their product seem less maintenance heavy and more appealing to a buyer. We’ve been doing this for over 30 years, you will thank us later!
